What do you think PH staff should know about you/your role?
As I joined NSH mid-pandemic, I’m still learning about the depth and breadth of our work, particularly the Healthy Communities and Early Years program areas. I’m looking forward to engaging in our recovery planning, getting to know our team and partners better, and supporting resumption of our Public Health work.
What’s your favorite part of working for PH?
I love working with the team – we have dedicated and innovative colleagues who are passionate about promoting health and preventing disease.
What is a ‘fun fact’ about you?
Outside of work, I love long hikes (my picture is from the Bluffs Wilderness Trail), cross-country skiing, and baking pies.
